During a recent appearance on Pancakes and Powerslams Show, former WWE Superstar Mr. Kennedy talked about having to lose his Money In The Bank contract due to injury, original plan being for him to defeat The Undertaker to become the World Heavyweight Champion & more. On almost becoming the World Heavyweight Champion in WWE:
“I was almost there. I think I was 2 days away from capturing the World Heavyweight Championship. Something like that. Well, it was the next day. I was actually gonna win the Title from Taker the next day.
We already planned it, WWE had sort of given me a layout, and then I got that injury. It’s frustrating, but what do you do? It’s part of life. Things happen, and you gotta make the best. I don’t harbor any ill will or resentment toward anybody, it’s just part of life.”
On why he didn’t return to WWE:
“I don’t really know. I think part of it had to do with my attitude, probably. I was very – I was like bitter for a couple of years after I left WWE, and said some things I probably shouldn’t have said. In hindsight, I can say if I could point to any one reason, I would point to myself.”
